hilton.gifYes, Paris Hilton is everywhere — and yes, we’re sick of it too. It’s gotten so bad that some networks are refusing to talk about her release from jail altogether. BUT, I thought this story had a unique spin, so read on if you’re willing.

Okay, so first off we have some incredible nonsense taking place online that is in fact leading to some green good. There is a site that exists called HollywoodStarTrash that — you guessed it — sells items on Ebay from the trash of today’s celebrities. There’s a buck to made everywhere. Anyways, an empty can of organic dog food from Paris Hilton’s trash has reached the astronomical number of $1.5 million on Ebay. Supposedly, this bid is from a verified buyer. Wow.

The good news is — the company that makes the organic dog food, Party Animal Pet Food — is experiencing a massive surge in sales thanks to the free publicity. From their site,

“Party Animal “Organic” Gourmet Dog Food offers two flavors, Organic Chicken and Organic Turkey. Both flavors consist of the finest organic meat, veggies, and fruit, and are complete and balanced for all breeds and life stages!”

So while trash may be the center of attention (And when isn’t it?), at least there’s some awareness spreading to a company striving to provide organic options to pet owners. Meanwhile, someone is about to pay $1.5 million for an empty dog food can. Oh, the world we live in.
